A tasty mashup of barbecue & Asian flavors
Welcome to Auckland's most eclectically decorated restaurant, a quirky and stylish combination of retro Eurochic ski lodge and colonial Shanghai. Such disparate design elements shouldn't work together, but they do, and there's an equally cosmopolitan alliance on the menu. The bold flavors of southeast Asia—especially Thailand and Vietnam—are paired with American barbecue (courtesy of the kitchen's giant low and slow smoker), and on dishes like coconut-braised beef short rib with chilli jam and mint, it's tasty evidence of culinary inspiration. Other standout dishes are crispy batons of fried eggplant and a fragrant duck curry, and the well-considered wine, cocktail and craft beer list is one of Auckland's best.
